Fishery Opening Times:
We are open daily at 7.30am. We close at sunset every day (or slightly earlier if all anglers have caught and gone).
Last cast 15 minutes before closing time.
From time to time we run events such as competitions, fun days, charity or group days. For some of these events, part or all of the fishery may be closed to day ticket anglers. Details of any restrictions are listed on our calendar.
Lodge Opening Times
The fishing lodge is always open when the fishery is open from 7.30 am and if for a short while it is not manned you are still able to enter the lodge during its open hours, fill in a ticket, go fishing, make yourself a coffee or tea and use the facilities ! We can do group breakfasts and lunches. If you would like this please let us know a few days in advance so we can get this ready for you. Or if your group is small (say 2-6 people) if you call the day before to let us know we can make sure to have either bacon or bacon and egg baps ready for you either on arrival or for mid morning, whichever you prefer. Although at the moment Annie is still suffering from a broken right arm and unless she has help she cannot provide breakfast rolls. Sorry everyone, but if you ask her nicely (Mon to Sat) she can pop out to the local Sandwich shop and get some provisions for you !!!
